In practice, signal strengths between -60 and -90 dBm are encountered at the receive antenna of a mobile device. So how much is that actually? On the high end of the scale, -60 dBm equals 0.000000001 Watts, while – 90 dBm are 0.000000000001 Watts.
I find two things quite remarkable in these numbers: First, both values are very small, definitely not enough to power anything and its amazing that receivers can pick up such small signals. And secondly, the wide range a receiver has to adapt to as the weakest signal compared to the strongest signal in this example is 1000 times weaker.
